Tesco Paracetamol Caplets

Tesco Paracetamol Caplets
Advantages: Mild pain relief, cheap, great for travel
Disadvantages: Dissolves quickly in the mouth, leading to a possible horrible taste!
The price to pain relief ratio is paracetamol, with any brand, is fantastic. I do not think there is anything else you can get that is as effective for the same price over the counter. At Tesco, the price for 16 of these is only about 30p making them incredibly affordable. Every now and again, I will just go into Tesco and essentially strip the shelves of their paracetamol just because I can afford to and because it is always handy to have these with you. You can keep a couple of packs in the medicine cabinet, a pack in the bathroom(s), a pack in the kitchen, a pack in the car and a pack in any bags which you carry around with you anywhere. The fact that the pack is pretty small makes it perfect for travel as it will not get in your way nor will it weigh your bag down - when you are away from home, having a headache which will not go can be horrible and annoy you for hours, these may combat that!
I was going to write a bit about paracetamol in this review but, to be honest, it just makes it longer than it has to be. I can not really explain it any better than the NHS can anyway, so here is the link to their paracetamol information page which lists the action the drug has on the body as well as recommended dosage for its use:
The tablets are the size of any other paracetamol tablet, about 2cm long. then come in a foil-backed plastic container strip which they must be pushed out of. As each tablet is individually sealed, this makes them, once again, perfect for travel as you can use one tablet once and not use another in the strip for months and it will still be ok.
What I dislike about the tablets is that if you leave them in your mouth just a little too long, it starts to dissolve, not only does this then make it more difficult to swallow but, as any of you who have ever done the same will know, paracetamol tablets taste absolutely disgusting! For this reason, I do prefer to go for capsules over the tablets.
Summary: For headaches and other mild pain, this can really take the edge off!
